Ohhhhh... it happened all right. Unfortunately, I'm having fits trying to upload a pic here. Anyone interested can look at the wife's blog at GalleyWenchTales.com

If you want a wilderness experience in Vancouver you can have it, AND eat a donut (they really aren't donuts) that Kate Winslet gave a shout out to, had some shipped to her home, and loves them.

There is a fjord (most southerly fjord in North America) call Indian Arm. At this time of the year it will be almost deserted. And in this fjord - Indian Arm - is a small community called Deep Cove, you can anchor there and access the public dock with your dinghy. From the time you get off the dinghy and go to Honey's for a donut or other items, the total time elapsed will be minutes, its less than a hundred yards from the pier.

You can go to the end of Indian Arm where the anchorage is decent. There is a Royal Vancouver Yacht Club outstation you can't use but this information will tell you how popular this area can be.

Enjoy False Creek, you need to obtain a free pass, good for two weeks. I forget how to get it but Google is your friend on this. Just remember what you can and can not bring over the border when shopping at the great market there. I was just there two weeks ago at the Vancouver Wood Boat Show.
